Concrete Walls Vs. Steel Wall

concrete vs steel vs polyAt Plan Pool & Patio, we only build pools with heavy duty concrete walls. The main benefit of concrete walls for your residential or commercial pool is that they never rust, its ten inch thick which is the same thickness as most homes foundations, and we offer a lifetime warranty on walls. In comparison, steel pool walls will typically rust over time, the ground may move the steel wall requiring costly repairs, and is only a 1/4″ thick. 

We are the only Minnesota Pool Builder that does everything in house. No sub-contractors. Once your hole is dug we will work everyday until the project is finished. Plan Pool & Patio has in house crews that build the pool, landscape the yard and build the fence to protect your investment. Our projects finish in half the time with no middle men or sub contractors.  What truly makes us special is that we are the only swimming pool contractor in Minnesota that offers concrete wall vinyl liner pools. Every other pool guy is selling you an over priced tin can. Our pool walls come with  a lifetime warranty.
